Nikwax and its sister company for garments, Páramo, are launching their joint initiative called ?Green Retailer.? If retail customers fulfill certain criteria, they will be awarded the title of ?Nikwax & Páramo Green Retailer.? Customers are invited to fill out a questionnaire giving information on the shops' ecological footprint, including use of own-created electric power from solar panels or wind turbines, switching to low energy lighting, opting for unheated shops and recycling outdoor gear.
